  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Put the eggs in a medium saucepan and cover them with water, about 1 to 2 inches above the eggs. Place the pan over medium heat and bring to a full boil. Place the lid on the pan and remove it from the heat. Let the eggs stand for 15 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Transfer the cooked eggs to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.

    Peel the eggs under cool running water and then cut them in half lengthwise.  Pop the egg yolks into a small bowl and place the egg whites on a plate or egg tray.
  5. Step 5

    Mash the yolks with a fork and then add the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix until well blended.
  6. Step 6

    Fill the egg halves with the egg yolk mixture. Put the filled eggs in the refrigerator until you are ready to decorate the eggs.
  7. Step 7

    Slice the olives in half and set aside 12 halves for the spider bodies. Slice the remaining halves into thin "legs" for the spiders.
  8. Step 8

    Arrange 8 thin legs on a stuffed egg and place an olive half "body" in the center. Repeat with the remaining legs and olives. Move decorated eggs to a container and refrigerate them as you work on the remaining eggs.
